Hot Springs Love in Wyoming
A little over two hours from the border of Colorado is a Wyoming town that time forgot. There are no stoplights in Saratoga and that’s the way the town, with a population of 1,600, like it. What the town lacks in traffic and crowds, it makes up for in beauty and hot springs. Not only is there the Hobo Hot Pool that’s free and open 24-hours a day to the public, but there is also a hot springs resort that makes a charming destination.
It is now the Saratoga Hot Springs Resort, but there have been buildings on the site since 1877. Today, it is a haven for soakers, craft beer lovers, spa-goers and weddings. The resort is a little oasis from the crazy world. It features the Snowy Mountain Brewpub with 11 beers on tap. The outdoor Biergarten with twinkling lights in the trees is magical on a cold winter’s night. The restaurant’s new chef has created a menu full of delicious items such as pulled pork tacos, pizza and ribeye.
The resort’s own spa, Healing Waters Spa, is located next to the hot springs’ teepees and pools. It doesn’t get dreamier than a dip in a pool shrouded in mist followed by a couples massage. Of course, it’s the hot springs that most people come here for and without a doubt they are unique. There is a large pool, several smaller pools for soaking, and three more pools covered in teepees for privacy and protection from the weather. However, soaking here with softly falling snow melting into the warm water is a magical experience.
The poolside king suites have flat screen televisions and rustic yet comfy decor. Romance packages are available, complete with chocolate and champagne because Saratoga Resort knows this is a splendid spot to rekindle that romantic flame. The town, though small, has one of Wyoming’s nest Italian restaurants, Bella’s Bistro. People come from around the state to get a table here, so reservations are recommended. The Saratoga Sandwich Company and the Hotel Wolf’s pub, circa 1893, get rave reviews.
There are over 100 miles of freestone rivers owing through the area and blue-ribbon fishing is a favorite pastime. Easy access to the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre Mountains means that winter activities abound, and the resort staff can help guests set up snowmobile outings and more. From hot springs to horses, this lodge, ski property, guest ranch, and resort offer couples fun and relaxation. Perhaps it is breakfast in bed or a curated snowmobile outing—no detail has been overlooked. Whether it involves wagons or simply soaking in a hot springs pool, this will be a trip to remember for years to come.
